Please note that the MHFA for the Suicidal Person Course is not a postvention course and is not recommended for individuals recently bereaved by suicide. The MHFA for the Suicidal Person Course is not a therapy or a support group and it is important that people undertaking the course are feeling relatively robust when they undertake it. Specific postvention support services can be found at the beyondblue website. This course consists of 4-hours of face-to-face training. Course participants receive a Handbook to keep and receive a digital Certificate of Completion when they submit online feedback. Any interested adult can attend. The course complements the 12-hour Standard MHFA course, Blended MHFA Courses and the 14-hour Youth MHFA course.
